Gun Cabinet Pictures. hardware wasn’t placed on the cabinet yet in the final pic. White wouldn’t have been my first choice but the client wanted it to match existing built ins. After finishing it, i really liked the white.

welcome. its a great group of people. Nice job on the gun cabinet. I like the fluted corners, although it wouldn’t fit the decor of my house.

I agree on the white. I hate painting nice wood furniture, but some time you’ve got to pay the bills.

Nice cabinet, and welcome. I know if I was the gun owner, and you came to me and said that you realized you hadn’t provided/he hadn’t asked for a dehumidification feature, I’d probably want it added, if it wasn’t too high a price. Consider the cost of the addition Vs the cost of cleaning rust off of a (possibly) really expensive gun. My target rifle is in that category. I’d hate to clean up rust. My pistol sat for about 8 years and when I pulled it out in ‘92, the forcing cone had some rust. I was NOT pleased. I had cleaned and oiled it, but not used grease, as I was shooting more in those days, and expected to go again soon, I guess. But I had some children (and a boatload of overtime) in that time frame, and shooting fell by the wayside for awhile.

I appreciate all of your input. this might be a stupid question but, is a dehumidifier needed in a unsealed cabinet such as this one? I mean by placing a dehumidifier in the cabinet would i not be dehumidifieng the whole room? Not trying to contridict what you are saying, I’m honestly qurious for the future. thank you again.
Sincerely Joshua

It really depends on the gun owners care of the weapons, so many variables. I have noticed in my cabinet, areas( feed ramps, jeweled bolts, ar-15 bolt lugs and 1911 barrels breech area) I normally got slight surface rust stopped when I the added the demhumidefier all was eliminated.

Nice looking cabinet, I need to build one for myself, would you mind sharing some dimensions/material information and if your feeling generous some a step by step instruction lol.

After I built my gun cabinet, I purchased a dehumidifier from cabelas. I just needed to drill a home for the cord and plug it in. I had more problems with the leather than the metal, (i keep my guns well oiled) and the humidifier helped a lot.

Nice cabinet but lacks real security.

Thanks for the response on the dehumidifier. As far as security goes it is more of a display piece. Not really meant to compete with a full metal bolt style lock safe. I agree if it wasn’t a full glass front case I would hhave suggested that he upgradethe locking mechanism
